ABSTRACT
A new concept of solid-solid mass diffusion fin was introduced in this paper. The authors described the mass diffusion in fluid flows to analyze the transfer process in solids and its applications, especially in metallurgical research. Using the advantage of the similarity between heat transfer and mass diffusion transfer will make this issue more practical. The authors suggested a new approach to determine the maximum mass diffusion transfer between two solids by implementing of the extended surface on each solid, where the optimal mass diffusion between solids is required. Then, meshing the surfaces together in order to increase the transfer efficiency was carried out. A complete analysis of the extended surfaces design (diffusion fins), its efficiency and effectiveness were presented. Moreover, mathematical models of each consideration were constructed. The authors found that the total surface efficiency increased along with the number of mass diffusion fins attached to the base, but its effectiveness did not. The mass diffusion for an extended plate increased the total mass diffusion transfer between two materials.
